9781939594112: Fundamentals of LGBT Substance Use Disorders: Multiple Identities, Multiple Challenges

?In this new book, the successor to the classic in the field Counseling Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Substance Abusers: Dual Identities by Dana G. Finnegan and Emily B. McNally, Michael Shelton reviews the empirical literature and synthesizes what we know about the prevalence of LGBT substance use, abuse, and treatment availability, emphasizing the need for affirmative therapeutic practices. The principles of trauma-informed and culturally competent treatment/intervention are explained and assessed, as well as the challenges of minority stress and microaggressions experienced by the LGBT population. Separate sections focus on the sub-populations of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender individuals. Separate chapters focus on LGBT youth, the elderly, family constellations and concerns, criminal justice issues, and rural LGBT substance abuse. This volume provides an introduction to the field that will be useful both as a primary textbook and as a handbook/reference for LGBT-focused and general substance-use disorder clinics and their administrators, clinicians, trainees, allies and volunteers.

About the Author:

?Michael Shelton has previously served as a board member for NALGAP (National Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Addiction Professionals and Their Allies). Among his previous books are Gay Men and Substance Abuse: A Basic Guide for Addicts and Those Who Care for Them, which was awarded Best LGBT Book of the Year by the Independent Book Publishers Association, and Family Pride: What LGBT Families Should Know About Navigating Home, School, and Safety in Their Neighborhoods.

Review:

?Finnegan and McNally established a gold standard with the release of their book Counseling Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Substance Abusers: Dual Identities, which has been used by counselors treating LGBT substance abusers for more than three decades. Now with the release of the official successor edition from Harrington Park Press, Fundamentals of LGBT Substance Use Disorders: Multiple Populations, Multiple Challenges, the standard is being raised for all current and future addiction professionals. As a clinician, author Michael Shelton is deeply aware of the need to utilize current research, evidence-informed practices, and culturally fluid approaches. Combining this knowledge with his skills as a writer, he expertly disseminates this material to the reader. Substance use in the LGBT communities continues to be a significant health issue. We know treatment works, and we now have another resource to assist in meeting the challenge. (Philip T. McCabe, president of NALGAP (The Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Addiction Professionals and Their Allies), Rutgers Center for Alcohol Studies)

??An excellent and thorough update on best and evidence based practices in addressing substance use in LGBT populations... The depth and breadth are impressive. Cogently addresses minority stress and trauma, which are key to understanding and effectively treating problematic substance use in sexual minorities. (Barbara Warren, director for LGBT Programs and Policies, Office for Diversity and Inclusion, Mount Sinai Health System)

This contemporary and thorough resource may be helpful for anyone who wishes to better understand LGBT substance use and more sensitively and effectively support LGBT individuals in treatment, recovery, and counseling settings. Whether you have never worked with LGBT clients or have considerable experience, this book has something for you.... Ideally suited for students, clinicians, and administrators in general, and for LGBT-focused clinics and treatment programs. (Sandra Radin SALIS News)
